Dill might seem like a surprising addition to a slaw, but hear me out. Just a touch of dill adds a delightful freshness while also pairing well with both tacos and grilled meals. This slaw stores well in the refrigerator, and since it isn’t mayo- or yogurt-based, it can sit out for a few hours, which means it’s perfect for picnics and grill-outs.

I shared this recipe on my Instagram a few weeks back, but as promised I’m also sharing it here so you know where to find it.
